The July Ramble
Only four ramblers turned up on a beautiful Saturday morning at Chipping Village Hall, setting off through the village turning left to Chipping Lawn Farm where sheep are milked for cheese manufacture.
From here the group took the track to the north towards Park Gate, then on to a footpath to the left at Leagram Brook. The path led steadily uphill on to moorland with a scenic panorama, and then dropped down to meet a farm track and on to Lickhurst Farm.
Keeping a northerly course, the ramblers crossed a brook and climbed around a hill to view the end of this valley, the Long Knots, and the target of this ramble, Dinkling Green Farm. Lunch was taken before the farm, and on walking thru’ it appeared a holiday complex was growing amongst the buildings. The return route followed a minor road and on to the Little Bowland road, where a right turn led on Higher and then Lower Greystoneley. The Greystoneley Brook was then forded, and after a climb, Knot Barn and Knot Hill (an example of Tautology) were reached, and thence back to Chipping via Leagram Mill, Dairy Farm and Town End.
An enjoyable walk of 7miles in excellent weather.
